About Belcote Cottage – luxury self catering just yards from the beach

Open-plan living space

Open-plan living space

Belcote Cottage is a traditional seaside holiday cottage more than 150 years old. Recently renovated and extended to an exceptionally high standard the cottage offers a relaxing luxury getaway for families and friends. Perfect for a Fife self catering holiday, the boutique cottage is set just yards back from the award-winning beach with no need to cross any roads.

The contemporary open plan living area, seldom found in boutique holiday cottages, opens fully onto the warm and sunny private back garden which is protected from the evening chill off the sea. The garden is fully enclosed, children safe, and a sixty second stumble to the beach with a bucket and spade. Read what guests say about the luxury cottage in Scotland in our online visitors book.

Right by the beach but sheltered from the evening chill from the sea

Unlike a lot of holiday cottages in Fife that are close to the sea the Elie Cottage garden is south facing and enjoys all day sun long into the evening. There is a wonderful terrace fully open off the sun lounge where guests can sit on warm summer evenings, perfect for barbecuing and alfresco entertaining.

Whilst there are lots of Elie holiday homes available to rent, luxury beach cottages are harder to find because very few are completely rebuilt or renovated to such as high standard, and no new build is allowed in the conservation area.

A brief history of Belcote Cottage and the ‘Royal Burgh of Elie & Earlsferry’

Belcote Cottage was originally built in the 1850s in the area called Liberty that nestled between Earlsferry and Elie. Most people think of Elie as just one village when it is actually four dating back to the mid 13th Century.
